Educator Preparation Program

Colorado School of Mines

Minor in Teaching

This Teaching Minor can be added to any BS degree program at Mines and can be completed in two years or less. You can focus on  one of three areas: Computer Science, Mathematics, or Science.

The Teach@Mines curriculum has been designed to prepare math and science teachers exclusively. This means that your classmates will be STEM majors; all your program instructors and mentors will be math, science, and computer science teachers; and most importantly everything you learn will be specifically about teaching your subject area.

The coursework consists of 24 credits of licensure coursework which includes Field Experience; Educational Psychology and Assessment; Dynamic Teaching-Motivation, Classroom Management, and Differentiation of Instruction; two methods courses – Practices in the Field and Teaching Techniques; Practicum; and Student Teaching.  All courses are delivered in the evening either on the Mines campus or online.

The T@M faculty consist of practicing teachers and education researchers.  You will have a dedicated mentor and advisor who will support you throughout your program and especially during practicum and student teaching.

T@M also maintains close connections with local school districts and facilitates job placement after completion of licensure.
